Culture’s Impact on Conversion

Jonathan Dobson writes for the Acts29 Network about the need to understand and adapt the way that we (Christians) present the gospel to those outside of the church. We all know, to varying degrees that our experience of the gospel and our response to the gospel is unique, but what do we do when we change the cultural context? In Conversion & Contextualization Dobson looks at the experiences of missionaries in the 19th and 20th centuries describing the frustrations and challenges they faced as they shared the Good News expecting conversions to follow the same pattern across the cultural spectrum.
